About the Studios
The studios are equipped with 25 electric potters' wheels, a gas reduction kiln and three electric kilns. To visit the studio prior to registration, call 212.415.5565. Stoneware is used during the fall term and spring terms and porcelain during the summer. All work is glaze-fired to cone 10. Clay is included in the cost of tuition unless you use bagged clay, which may be purchased for $20 per 25-pound bag. Firing charge is five cents per cubic inch for two firings for all work made in classes and workshops. Students must supply their own tools, which may be purchased from 92nd Street Y.
Ceramics Open Studio
Open studio time is available to currently enrolled students for a fee of $3 per hour.
Private Instruction in Ceramics
92Y offers private instruction on Saturdays to students who are interested in exploring special topics or techniques (glazing, improving throwing skills, etc.). Participants work one-on-one with a 92Y faculty member within a shared studio and receive access to a firing card and open studio time. All fees apply. Single hourly lessons may be scheduled at $95 per hour or purchased as a multi-lesson package at a discounted rate. If you are interested in learning more, please call Bobby Silverman at 212.415.5565.
